Introducing your course

Secure your passport to a clinical academic career, research management role, or further research training with our interdisciplinary MRes programme. Aimed at healthcare practitioners, it is a component of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) clinical academics training pathway and will equip you with the skills and knowledge to engage in all aspects of clinical, healthcare or academic research. It is ideal if you are working in a clinical research environment but don’t hold a healthcare qualification or as preparation for clinical academic doctoral fellowship applications.


This Masters in Clinical and Health Research is designed for people looking for a more senior clinical appointment, leadership roles, a position in research, or an academic role.

It also serves as an excellent prelude to doctoral studies, and will help you develop skills that will assist your personal research activities as well.

At Health Sciences we have a solid reputation for research excellence in a global context, plus state-of-the-art facilities and first class academics; world renowned clinical academics, medical sociologists, health psychologists, epidemiologists and health service researchers teach on our MRes in Clinical & Health Research. It is all these things together that help make this one of the leading programmes of its kind anywhere in the world.
